TANKYODO Japanese Antique store is a little gem of a store located in Minami Azabu, Tokyo. We love this store so much we have added it to our favorite Japanese Antique Stores list. A bonus is that it is located in the same neighborhood as the Best Living Japan Studio so you can visit the store after taking a cooking or craft class.
TANKYODO Japanese Antiques, Minami Azabu, Tokyo
The English speaking owner, Masa, has a background in art, architecture, and antiques. He has remodeled a 40-year-old apartment house into a boutique antique shop that is beautifully remodeled with raw wood and cement floors, washi accented shoji, and beautiful lighting. His curated selection of Japanese tansu (chests) and home accessories is impressive. He is very knowledgeable about all the pieces and can explain in detail.
The store is tucked away behind Tokyo International School. Also note it is only open on Fri-Sun, although appointments can be made for private viewing.
